Rather rare in his media interventions despite his key role as technical director of Stade Rennais, Florian Maurice took advantage of the international break to evoke his memories of a player in the columns of the Telegram.

Friendship between Lyonnais and Stéphanois is possible!

Invited to speak about the eleven ideal of the players of his generation, the Rhone “Tintin” played the game… Evoking in particular his strong friendship with a former rival of ASSE: “In the goals, Christophe Revault, who left us, with which I played for a year, and it was really great. Behind, Jérôme Bonnissel, Laurent Fournier, Bruno Ngotty, Sébastien Perez. In the middle, Michael Essien, Patrick Vieira, Robert Pirès, Peter Luccin. Up front, I’m going to put Ronaldo with me. Honestly, with Sébastien Pérez, who is from Stéphanois and I from Lyonnais, we hated each other before becoming great friends! ”

If he went from hatred to love with a former Greens, Florian Maurice remains Lyonnais above all as evidenced by his best memory of victory: “I have two: 1-0 in the derby against Saint-Étienne where I scored (October 24, 1993) and 2-1 against Celta Vigo, in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Cup, with OM (March 2, 1999), where I made a double. Anything could happen that day, it would have gone well for me. “
